What are the key routes for UK trade? What makes them key routes?

Background

Increasing our global impact recognises the UK’s opportunities in the world and the importance of DfT contributing effectively toward the government’s vision of a global Britain. Operating and engaging globally will play a vital role in assisting the department in maintaining and extending its influence with international partners, including ensuring high standards of transport safety, security, and environmental protection and boosting UK trade, exports, and inward investment. UK science and innovation has the potential to develop transport-related exports and inward investment, thereby helping grow and level up the economy. Our R&D around climate change mitigation and adaptation can help influence the international community to take progressively stronger action.
